Real estate is almost always discussed and much more useful information derived from local figures but it can be nice to see how various parts of the country are doing for comparision. The below graphic is an interesting chart to show you overall figures. Not great to compare Seattle to Spokane or Portland to San Francisco but it's still nice to see how the figures stack up for sales volume and average price changes. This trend of increasing sales and prices is expected to continue this year and I expect into next year. If you're interested in your local market conditions or comparisons, please let me know.
